From the Back Cover:

You've heard from the "experts," now hear what the winners have to say about getting into your college of choice

. .

For instance, Harvardian Jacquelyn Kung explains which high school activities count most with admissions officers and why. Mitch Ginsberg, a Northwestern student, shows how to conduct highly focused research and find the perfect colleges for you. Evelyn Huang of Stanford--winner of more than $110,000 in scholarships--gives the scoop on landing financial aid. And eleven other members of College Matters--the acclaimed educational non-profit, run by students--share their priceless tips on:

. .
    .
  • Taking high school and AP classes that count .
  • Acing the SAT and ACT .
  • Writing killer application essays .
  • Landing dynamite letters of recommendation .
  • Scoring big points at interviews .
  • Getting recruited into college athletics programs .
  • And much more .
. .

You could rely on the opinions of admissions officers, college counselors, and other "experts." Or you can learn from the real experts in the College Matters Guide to Getting Into the Elite School of Your Choice , and aim for the college of your dreams.
